  10. 10. Other Presentation tools:<br />http://www.slideshare.net/Slideshare provides a format for showing PowerPoint Presentations online. Viewers can then leave comments on the presentation. This would be a very appropriate tool for an online class or a traditional classroom.<br />http://prezi.com/Prezi is a canvas based presentation tool where the presentation zooms in and out, rotates and spins. This type of tool can really grab the attention of students, who may want to create their own Prezis.<br />
